Ceaser Emanuel gets investigated by animal services after footage of him allegedly abusing dogs

  • June 26, 2022

Black Ink Crew’s Ceaser Emanuel is being investigated by local law enforcement and Fulton County Animal Services under suspicion of allegedly abusing dogs.

This comes after disturbing footage of the star, 43, showed him kicking and hitting his dog with a folding chair, shot on a Ring doorbell camera, recently emerged online. 

Emanuel, who explained his ‘crazy’ behavior in the video was his attempt to break up a violent fight between his dogs, was ‘questioned’ by police over the incident, his rep told TMZ.

The tattoo artist’s rep noted authorities found his dogs were ‘safe, healthy and show no signs of abuse.’ 

‘Although his actions were not appropriate at all, [Ceasar] is sincerely apologetic and feels extremely bad. He is dealing with death threats which is causing him fear and depression,’ the rep told the outlet.

He continued: ‘His only goal was to build an empire to help build jobs and bring the Black community in the tattoo industry successful given that the community is limited there.’

During an interview with TMZ earlier this week, Emanuel said it was a ‘moment in time’ he wishes he ‘could take back’ before explaining he ‘came home’ and saw his dogs ‘attacking each other.’

‘I don’t mean like the regular just play fighting, I mean, they was going for each other’s necks, basically trying to kill each other,’ the reality star recalled. 

As he tried to deescalate the dogs fighting, he confessed to being ‘nervous’ and ‘scared’ and tried to ‘back the dog down.’ 

‘Not one time was I trying to abuse this dog,’ he stated. ‘All I was trying to do was getting him back in the cage.’

In addition to revealing he gave one of the dogs away to a friend, he pointed out that he is aware that what he ‘did was a mistake.’ 

On Thursday, Emanuel was fired from the VH1 series Black Ink Crew over the recording.

‘We have made the decision to cut ties with Ceaser Emanuel from Black Ink Crew New York,’ a spokesperson for the network told TMZ. ‘Since next season was close to finishing production, this decision will not impact the upcoming season.’

Insiders with the series said that while production is in the final stages, the situation will be addressed in the series.

Lombardi said, ‘If you can treat a dog like this, it shows how sick of a person you truly are.’

She added that ‘CHARGES NEED TO BE PRESSED’ and ‘CANCELLATIONS NEED TO BE MADE’ in connection with the clip.

Lombardi added: ‘EVERYONE MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE! CANT CHANGE THIS NARRATIVE!’

Emanuel’s attorney Walter Mosley told TMZ that ‘there is no police involvement’ in the case, as ‘the video is old’ and ‘was shot at his residence in Atlanta during COVID’ lockdown.

Emanuel had been featured on the series since its 2013 debut, as it chronicled business at his Harlem-based shop Black Ink Tattoo. Emanuel has also been seen on the shows Love Hip Hop: Atlanta and Love and Hip Hop: New York.
